The original abandoned warehouse has been remodelled by Thailand's leading architec firm allzone into an elegant, gleaming box for contemporary treasures, finished with glittering tiles. The mirror mosaic, found in a Lanna temple, reflects local tradition integrated cleverly with ultra-modern ambition. Another well-known collector, Disapol Chansiri, is upgrading his Chiang Mai Collection House to a museum to house works by leading local and international contemporary artists. Traditional Thai art and craft ranges from paintings and musical instruments to beautiful silk, silver wear, pottery, puppets, Khon masks, model warships, bronze wear, soap carving, sculptures, wood and stone carvings, ceramics and much more.
Visitors will notice that much of Thailand's art and craft is a contrast, with spectacular ancient gold gilded temples surrounded by modern urban environments and contemporary hotels and resorts enhanced with traditional Thai paintings, sculptures and woven materials for a more authentic atmosphere. However, for a real insight into Thailand art and craft it is the ancient temples that best showcase the local people's skills and creativity. Curved gables, gilded gold, sparking mirror artworks and carvings of gods and religious figureheads offer some of the best examples of the handicrafts of the Thai people.
Lovingly created with an almost impossible attention to detail, these sculptures and murals are a devotion to the Buddha and are a popular tourist attraction.
